Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Such stubbornness deserves comeuppance in the form of sharp metallic blades that merrily criss-cross to and fro across the frozen surface. Subvert the top layer of liquid fun with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get admission to two open-skate sessions with skate rental at Marietta Ice Center in Marietta (up to a $20 value).
With today’s Groupon tucked in the toe stop, guests can skate during any of the public skate sessions, which are typically offered at least five days a week. On select nights, ice walkers can enjoy the suborbital splendor of cosmic skating, a time when the lasers, fog machines, LED lights, and house speakers fill the air with a spectrum of color and an earful of skate-worthy beats. Parents can skate with their youngsters, youngsters can trot along with their siblings, and siblings can challenge rival families to cyclical drag races intensified by seasonally enchanting smiles.
The Marietta Ice Center
The sound of skate blades scraping to a stop constantly fills the air at The Marietta Ice Center, known as the MIC. Aspiring skaters gain confidence on the ice during learn-to-skate classes that teach basic skills, such as how to glide and how to stop without going into a belly flop. Hockey hopefuls learn similar basics during learn-to-play sessions that prepare them for joining one of the rinks leagues or pickup games during sticktime. Patrons regain their ice legs during public-skate sessions, with rental skates available for those who need them.
